You should never overlook the importance of your bedroom. It is the place where you relax, close your eyes, and let down all of your defenses. In this prone state, your mind is able to reset, digesting the various events and information from the day, and preparing itself for the new one.
All of this makes the ambiance of your bedroom environment particularly important. Luckily there are a number of inventive ways that you can keep the look and feel of this space fresh, without having to spend a fortune in fancy accessories and high end materials.
The first and most simple thing you should do is clean the space up. It doesn’t cost anything to keep your bedroom neat and attractive, and it really does make a difference.
Aside from general cleanliness you should also make sure that all of your possessions are kept in a tightly organized manner. Clutter can make a room feel claustrophobic, and will lead to a disorderly mind and life.
Making sure that various colors, patterns, and fabrics all match one another is another basic step that you can take to keep the bedroom looking its best. Even if your decorative pieces are all inexpensive, or low end, they will look better as a whole if they are coordinated in some manner.
One inexpensive way to completely change the look and feel of the bedroom is with paint. You can choose to either change all four walls, or to create a single accent wall in the space.
If that is too drastic, you can also just paint the molding around windows and doors, to create a contrasted effect with the main colors in the room.
Using stencils to create patterns, even if they just trace the lines of a wall, is a way to get really creative and add your own personal vision to the space.
You aren’t just stuck with conventional paint either. Fabric paint can afford you a whole new dimension of creativity. Machine washable fabric safe paints can be purchased at most art or crafting stores.
With fabric paint you can change up the look of couches, and other upholstered items whenever you like, or change them all so that they match one another.
You can also use sheets to create your own customized mural. The sheets can be painted and then hung from walls or the ceiling using cup hooks. This allows you to create a new portrait and change the rooms feel whenever you want.
Muslin is another great and inexpensive fabric that can be purchased at most fabric stores. You can hang it above the bed using cup hooks to create a canopy, or simply spread it throughout the space to create a love nest.
Your bedroom is too important to leave flat, boring, and undecorated. Using just a few simple, and inexpensive ideas, and a little creativity of your own, you can easily remake the ambiance of the space, whenever the fancy takes you.
